Hi

i am trying to add ajax for a dropdown and i have added the below code in my xhtml but the listner is not getting called once there is a change.

XHTML Code:
<h:selectOneMenu
value="#{loginBean.dropDownValue}" itemValue="#{dropDownValue}">
<f:selectItem itemValue="****select***" />
<f:selectItems value="#{loginBean.testDropDown}"/>
<f:ajax event="change" listner="#{loginBean.changeDropDownOne}" render="testDropDownTwoValue" />
</h:selectOneMenu>


method in the bean:

public List<SelectItem> changeDropDownOne() {
System.out.println("$$$$$$$$$$");
String dp = getDropDownValue();
if(dp != null) {
System.out.println("**********************getTestDropDownTwo********************************"+dp);
if(dp.equalsIgnoreCase("One")) {
testDropDownTwo.add(new SelectItem("One - One"));
testDropDownTwo.add(new SelectItem("One - Two"));
testDropDownTwo.add(new SelectItem("One - Three"));
testDropDownTwo.add(new SelectItem("One - Four"));
} else if(dp.equalsIgnoreCase("Two")) {
testDropDownTwo.add(new SelectItem("Two - One"));
testDropDownTwo.add(new SelectItem("Two - Two"));
testDropDownTwo.add(new SelectItem("Two - Three"));
testDropDownTwo.add(new SelectItem("Two - Four"));
}else if(dp.equalsIgnoreCase("Two")) {
testDropDownTwo.add(new SelectItem("Three - One"));
testDropDownTwo.add(new SelectItem("Three - Two"));
testDropDownTwo.add(new SelectItem("Three - Three"));
testDropDownTwo.add(new SelectItem("Three - Four"));
}else {
testDropDownTwo.add(new SelectItem("Four - One"));
testDropDownTwo.add(new SelectItem("Four - Two"));
testDropDownTwo.add(new SelectItem("Four - Three"));
testDropDownTwo.add(new SelectItem("Four - Four"));
}
}
return testDropDownTwo;
}


Please help me in this regard

There is no "listner" attribute in the f:ajax tag. This should be listener.

Also why is there a render attribute in f:ajax? What is the "testDropDownTwoValue"? Is this a boolean or another component id? If the latter then use update attribute.

Thanks for the reply.

I have changed the spelling of the listener and it is not working.

in listener="#{loginBean.changeDropDownOne} will return a List that should be applied to another dropdown.

Thanks

Then you need another drop down for testDropDownTwoValue and render this drop down when some condition is met.

I believe you are missing the AjaxBehaviorEvent parm in the changeDropDownOne() method.

Yes you do. Have a look at the f:ajax tag here

Don't take me for granted about the attributes. That site has the other tags too.

No you don't. It's optional and I, for one avoid using it. That makes the listener a POJO method. Which is preferable unless you actually NEED to use that particular parameter.

I don't see an "update" attribute in the Oracle docs for the f:ajax tax. As far as I'm aware "render" is the propery attribute for re-rendering dependent elements.

 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
